Western Kentucky students receive first Undergraduate Library Research Awards

CORBIN — Special to the Times-Tribune

Western Kentucky University students Andrew Alvey of Warren County and Megan Stohner of Whitley County were awarded the first WKU Libraries and University Experience Undergraduate Research Awards last Tuesday at WKU’s Cravens Library.

Alvey was recognized for the best career essay and Stohner received an award for the best annotated bibliography. Both students received a $100 cash award along with a plaque honoring their achievements.

Alvey, a freshman from Bowling Green, was surprised to be selected as the top choice. “I was just concentrating on getting the assignment completed,” said Alvey, “I was very excited when I won.”

According to Tammera Race, WKU librarian and selection committee member, the purpose of the research awards is to recognize the important role of good library research in college academic success. Race noted that “students from University Experience classes are a great fit as they have a final project tied to their research instruction.”

Sara McCaslin, Library Skills Coordinator for University Experience, echoed Race’s comments. “The award is a way for students to recognize the benefit of good research and to foster it throughout their entire careers,” McCaslin said.

For information, contact Carol Watwood, Chair of the Undergraduate Research Award Selection Committee, at 270-745-6977.
